Rife announce Switchback XL putter


Rife Putters has announced the release of the Switchback XL – the company’s latest performance driven putter – which will be available in the UK this spring.

Incorporating custom fit options and tour proven technology, the Switchback XL delivers individually tailored performance in a stylish oversized blade design.

Underpinned by Rife’s trademarked technology, the latest putter release has an extra layer of customisation never seen before from the company.

With adjustable weights off the bumpers of the toe and heel, the Switchback XL offers weight options from 375g to 415g and, for those preferring to promote a curved swing path, weights can be mixed for a total weight of 395g with a bias to either side.

The adjustable weighting from Rife adds another custom fit option to its long-standing Lie-Aline custom fitting system.

When purchased in store, the double bend shaft can be easily adjusted to the perfect lie angle for the golfer’s set up. The matching of the white sight line and the notch in the back of the face gives the golfer a repeatable stance with the sole of the putter flat to the floor.

In addition to the custom fit options, the Switchback XL benefits from Rife’s RollGroove technology.

Milled grooves in the face of the putter deliver a quick, true roll by gripping and lifting the ball forward at impact. This technology has helped the world’s best players to victories on all major tours and continues to deliver one of the best possible rolls in golf.

The oversize Blade design breeds confidence in alignment and stroke, while the combination of the company’s tour proven technology and the latest adjustable weight innovation make the Switchback XL a fantastic option for anyone who takes their putting seriously.
